Any excuse for more post! February 19, 2022 12:46 AM   Subscribe

After the success of the Holiday and Valentine card swaps, I propose we organise a few more opportunities to send nice things in the mail!

I was thinking Solstice, World Stationery Day (20 April) and World Letter Writing Day (1 September). If there is interest I am more than happy to organise and run these ones.

Join MeFi Card Club! You can sign up to send/receive as many as you want! Every month! And specify any occasion, too, from, “It’s my birthday” to, “I just want to get some mail.” It’s great!

The Mefi Card Club got started from exactly this sentiment -- after the Christmas and Valentine's Day swaps, people were having such a good time that they wanted to keep on sending/receiving. I was actually thinking about making a Metatalk post, just to let newer members know that it's a thing. It just passed its 4-year anniversary!

It's basically an on-going card swap. You sign up for when you want to receive cards - this can be specific days, months, or every month, and then on a monthly basis, you get a form to let me know if you want to send out cards, and how many. I take those two inputs, do some matchmaking, a lot of copy/pasting, and then send out the assignments.

If you are interested, send me an email at meficardclub@gmail.com.

If you want to do larger , more specific swaps, go for it! I think your holidays are good ones. I'd probably sign up, at least for the solstice ones.

I put your comment on the sidebar, Sparky Buttons, but feel free to make a Metatalk post, too! (I can update the sidebar post to include it)

My "send me cards!" months/events are equinoxes, solstices, and my MF anniversary, so hello future astronomical-celebration friends. :D
